Tattoo rubs Groningen police up the wrong way

28th March 2009, Comments 0 comments

Police in Groningen in the north of the Netherlands have arrested a man who has the letters, A C A B, tattooed on his neck.

GRONINGEN - They believe the letters stand for the English slogan 'All Coppers Are Bastards', and say they are taking the insult extremely seriously.

Initially, the 30-year-old man admitted he had got the tattoo because he was angry with the police.

However, he later changed his story, saying the letters stood for the Dutch, 'Acht Cola, Acht Bier', which means 'eight cokes, eight beers'.

He has also been charged with offences relating to drugs he was found to be carrying after he was taken into custody.
